The link doesn't work. My guess is that it was an error and was pulled when discovered.

this looks like one of those "scammy" sites where they might sell you a k-3 but they will take a way all of the accessories and you will have no warranty etc.

Says all the accesories are included but a quick google of the company "Fumfie" it's easy to see why one should run for the hills

It was working for me just now. They automatically added a 3 year non-Pentax warranty into the cart but I x'd that out and the total was $890 with free shipping. Not that I would ever order from this website. The mere fact that they don't offer the real Pentax 3 year extended warranty and substitute an expensive aftermarket one raises red flags as far as I am concerned.

Reviews are a real mixed bag.

Apparently they are also called Jersey Photo

One reviewer stated that they got a brand new credit card and used it at this store. The next day or two his bank called him because the cc number was used to buy gas in Brazil.

You don't want to go there.

Scam

I bought from them a couple years ago was supposed to get DA 55-300 lens at a good price, instead got DA-L lens. Had made numerous calls to get it straightened out. They did refund some of the money and I kept the DAL lens. There were several others having problems with them. They try to sell you all kinds of other stuff when you buy from them. Reviews not very good. Buyer beware!

I would use my Amex card and not worry about it.

you could always order the warranty from b&h. don't have to get the extended warranty from the same company, just within 30 days of purchase, at least that's my understanding.

not that i'm pitching for them, but with both paypal and visa/amex buyer protection plans, 890 is a tough deal to pass up if you're gonna get a K3 anyway. even if you have to put up with an annoying sales pitch phone call.

for some it might beat going through the hassle of selling a useless lens that's part of a "package"

if I had the money right now i'd be tempted, honestly at that price. at least it's not some store in china that takes western union....lol

nomadkng, unless they are a authorized pentax dealer, there is no guarantee the 2 year extended(or the 1 year oem) warranty will be honored.

Dont stay away from this place, RUN!! Read the reviews....doesnt sound worthwhile. I mean if you are gonna throw some serious cash at K3, why not pay some more and buy a hassle free deal from BHPhoto/Adorama/Amazon?
